Lisa completed her law degree in 2011, and subsequently worked in the criminal justice system and with those with hearing disabilities. Lisa started as a family paralegal with the firm in 2013, where she gained direct experience of dealing with a complex workload.
Following her completion of the Legal Practice Course in 2016, Lisa started her role as a trainee solicitor in September 2016 and is currently completing a placement within our Wills & Probate team. She predominantly deals with Wills, Enduring and Lasting Powers of Attorney and probate matters.
Lisa has a passion for working in the community having previously volunteered at Survive, a local charity offering support and advice to victims of domestic abuse, and more recently, she has trained as a ‘Dementia Friend’. On becoming a ‘Dementia Friend’, Lisa says:
“Raising awareness and supporting those with dementia in the community is important. The disease is close to my heart as my grandmother had vascular dementia and so I have seen first hand the effect of the disease on the person. Following the training, I have a better understanding of dementia and how I can support clients who are living with the condition in making their experience with us accessible and easier.”
